Embraer and CAE shared that, to meet growing demand for business jet training in the USA, Embraer-CAE Training Services (ECTS) has deployed a new Phenom 300E full-flight simulator.
The new full-flight simulator will be operated by ECTS, a joint venture between Embraer and CAE, at the new CAE Las Vegas Training Center in Nevada. There are six other Phenom-series simulators in operation, in Dallas, Texas; London Burgess Hill, UK; and Guarulhos, Brazil.
“Offering additional capacity for pilot training is part of our strategy to provide the best services to the market,” said Johann Bordais, president and CEO, Embraer Services & Support. “This new Phenom series simulator is also a milestone in our long-term relationship, and we are pleased to be part of the new CAE Las Vegas Training Center.”
The Phenom 300 light jet, of which there are over 700 units in operation, is capable of reaching Mach 0.80. Its avionics features include Runway Overrun Awareness and Alerting System (ROAAS), Emergency Descent Mode, coupled go-around, and more.
“We are very happy to see our partnership with Embraer grow with the addition of a new Phenom series simulator to our training network, and the first in Las Vegas, a strategic location for both our customers and business,” said Nick Leontidis, CAE Group president, civil aviation.
